kasawae, Iburiella Jordan [D. S.] & Hubbs [C. L.] 1925:291, Pl. 11 (fig. 1) [Memoirs of the Carnegie Museum v. 10 (no. 2); ref. 2486] Tomakomai, near Mororan, Japan. Holotype: FMNH 58796 [ex CM 7906]. Paratypes: (1). Type catalog: Henn 1928:94 [ref. 12305], Böhlke 1953:133 [ref. 12291], Ibarra & Stewart 1987:49 [ref. 12367]. Originally as kasawae; named after a man and correction to kasawai is not appropriate based on the nome not being excluded in Art. 32. Bailey & Gruchy 1970:982, footnote [ref. 6508] did not need to emend the ending to ai. The matter of emending the z to an s depends on whether one considers that the use of s rather than z was a lapsus. The spelling kasawai has not achieved the status of prevailing usage. We suggest regarding the original spelling as correct and spelling the name kasawae. This is a change from the recommendation in the 1998 printed version of the Catalog of Fishes based on an interpretation of the 1999 code. •Valid as Occella kazawai (Jordan & Hubbs 1925) -- (Bailey & Gruchy 1970:982 [ref. 6508]). •Valid as Occella kasawae (Jordan & Hubbs 1925) -- (Sheiko 1993:78 [ref. 21227]). •Valid as Occella kasawai (Jordan & Hubbs 1925) -- (Kanayama in Masuda et al. 1984:332 [ref. 6441], Lindberg & Krasyukova 1987:309 [ref. 15964], Kanayama 1991:106 [ref. 19261], Nakabo 2000:658 [ref. 25086], Nakabo 2002:658 [ref. 26001], Parin et al. 2002:S99 [ref. 28300], Sheiko & Mecklenburg 2004:17 [ref. 27591], Parin et al. 2014:291 [ref. 33547]).
